Need some input about a Bimini for my boat. I don't wish to drill any holes. I want a nice, clean, easy self-install at a fair price. Thanks for your help!!

Boss offers a great Bimini. I have one and it just clamps on to the tower. They are a little bit more expensive. Here's a pic of mine.

Nathan: Iím glad some on with a Boss Bimini replied because I have some questions: I asked a Dealer/friend "he sells Boss" About the boss Bimini he has had lots of boats and tried different types of bimini's and he said the boss bimini was Not as good as the standard Bimini That come on Nautique because, It doesn't offer as much shade as the square one and with it having the angle that it does it offers even less shade to the driver. I know you can adjust them to have whatever angle you want Yours seems to have a very sloped forward angle making it easier to get under it and into the drivers/passengers seat. It also looks like yours blocks the speakers when you bimini is up. Is this a problem? Do you have any photos of the bimini when it is closed up and under the tower? Thanks G
P.S Nice set up the black and white looks great

Nathan, Like Indo, I would like to know how much it would cost. Is the install pretty straight forward?

Aaron,
The bimini in that picture looks real akward. I think I have a better setup on my 2000 SA. When I get home from work I'll give you the manufacturer's name. If you look in my profile, this what it looks like in the up position. I also have a second set of mounts for when the bimini is in use or lowered to fit under the carport (with the tower folded also). The bimini is a little small compared to some I've seen but still gives you great shade - especially here in Texas when we're out in 100 -105 degree heat. I'll post again tonight.
Later, Ken

Grant, My bimini is really different from the standard Nautique bimini. I stil get plenty of shade when out on the water, but because of the angle I have it set at I don't have to bend as much to get up. I really liked the Boss because of the clamps. Other biminis I looked at had staps that needed to hold the bimini down. This is just a six clamp system. You are able to set it up exactly how you like it to look. I worked for the dealer when i got mine, but I think they sell for around $600. Well worth it in my opinion. Oh yeh, when it is folded up it sits right behind my tower speakers and straps directly to the tower.

Nathan,
When I said your bimini looked akward, I wasn't dogging it. I did't know it was so adjustable. I think it looks pretty good with the two-tone color. Wish I had gotten the two-tone. Anyway, good looking boat.

Check out these guys. Their bimini is one of the cleaner installs I've seen on a FCT that doesn't require drilling.
